This “ice cream” is for peanut butter and chocolate lovers alike! And for those of you who love both flavors, it is a dream come true! All you need is frozen bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. That’s all there is to it! Such a simple recipe, such delicious results……:) If you’re looking for a cool treat to satisfy your summer cravings, or just a naughty little indulgence that happens to be low-calorie….and delicious….then this recipe is for you. There are many different variations that you can create, but it all comes down to the frozen banana. As long as you have that, anything goes. Have fun my friends!

The Ingredients: 1 sliced banana (frozen), 2 tbsp. peanut butter of choice, 1 tbsp. chopped chocolate chips or mini chocolate chips, 1 tbsp. vanilla or chocolate almond milk (optional).

The night before you plan to make the “ice cream”, slice up a banana, place in into an airtight container, and freeze overnight. The next morning, take the frozen banana out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about five to ten minutes. In the bowl of your food processor, add the frozen banana. Blend on medium speed for about three minutes. If the mixture is clumpy, add the almond milk and mix until smooth and creamy. Spoon the mixture back into the airtight container and fold in the peanut butter and chocolate chips. Eat immediately if you like soft serve, or freeze for an hour to get and ice cream consistency. Enjoy!
